Oak Aged

Oak aged barley wine
Doesn’t seem to help me win
Extreme bocce ball

Written by Captain Hops.

References: I tried the Bourbon Barrel and Cabernet Barrel aged Barley Wines from Heavy Seas side by side today. Wow. Good work Hugh! I preferred the Cabernet Barrel Aged. It went great with blue cheese stuffed peppers and a grilled tuna steak. The Bourbon Barrel aged version was quite good too, but it seemed more appropriate for desert than with the meal. Keep in mind that these babies are 10% ABV. That fact didn’t do much for my bocce ball game and my brother pretty much kicked my ass all over my back yard.

Rounds

As the night wore on
They took turns telling stories
And buying more rounds.

A Beautiful Spring Day

Strolling with my beer
I didn’t notice the frisbee
Coming towards my head

A day so pretty
Even a harsh hangover
Cannot ruin it.

At the Brick Store Pub
Belgians fill our pints and souls
Up and to the left
